Our primary drivers for OSGeo-Live is as an introduction to Geospatial 
Open Source applications, although that is now expanding as people use 
OSGeoLive for workshops.

Also, OSGeo-Live is space constrained, so if we are to add a new 
dataset, it should be relatively small, and should be useful for 
multiple projects, (as well as being available under an open license 
such as Creative Commons).

For the quickstart, I'd suggest that you stick to the core simple use 
case which Deegree is being used for. Unless your core use case is 
serving complex schema data, then it probably isn't a candidate for the 
quickstart? Alternatively, if you are using OSGeo-Live within workshops 
for Deegree, then we may consider introducing a complex schema dataset.

I'm aware that GeoServer also supports complex schemas, so I'd want to 
ensure that the GeoServer community can make use of the dataset too.

So, key questions:
1. Is the complex schema use case the core 10 min use case you'd want to 
present for Deegree's quickstart?
2. Are you using OSGeo-Live for workshops, and want a complex schema 
dataset to demo functionality?
3. Can you source a small, open, complex schema dataset, preferably 
covering an Area of Interest already included in existing OSGeo-Live 
example datasets?
